SS Goth

Hello All

I've been doing some research about my great grandfather's service. Born in 1889 in London, he served as an assistant steward on various ships, most of them belonging to the Union Castle Line. After 2 years at sea he moved onto land-based employment as a delivery driver for Lever Bros.!

I have one photo of him in uniform, taken aboard the SS Goth (the name is embossed, upside down, on the bench they are sitting on). My grandfather is third from the left in the standing row.
